Which is the best art price reference website?

I need to subscribe to one of these websites that have zillions of auction and sale results for art and antiques. None of them give it away for free.

Do you have experience with Artnet, Invaluable, Artprice, etc.? I would like to know which site is best before throwing my money at one of them. Numbers of listings, breadth of coverage (i.e. auction houses, art, antiques, books, collectibles, etc.), ease of navigation, no hidden fees.

can you do free trials to research which is best for your needs?

Invaluable does offer some limited results for past prices, for free. As does Liveauctioneers. But in both cases I think it's only for auctions that used their online auction services. And the time frame is limited.
